I would like to invite you no.1

I want to introduce you, in the weeks before Christmas,  in a I would like to invite you wonderful Christmas special woman and friends from my little Line + Liv world and take you on a journey through their Christmas thoughts.

…  please meet Anna Rosinski my lovely sister in law.  Anna lives with her husband (co-owner of the advertising agency  LLR) and their two lovely daughters in a gorgeous old building 5 rooms in Hamburg/North Germany. Anna is in addition to her Ayurvedic education a creative mother and decorator and a truly “divine” cook. We look forward to every visit with her, but unfortunately we can do it too often … but next year we come more. Promise! … Please enjoy the next few moments with Anna…


+++ What is so special for you at the Advent and Christmas time?

Really quite beautiful we find as many candles to light at any time of day. Our home will shine just at festive, when the light is something outside greyish. An old building with high ceilings and a wood floor  is also adorned with a charm and atmosphere of dreary weather.

+++ Do you have a Christmas tradition?

Maybe our tradition is to have none. We all celebrate in different places and is aware of the number of people very variabel.The eating or going to church is to mood.

+++ Do you have a Christmas style?

I think so! It must not be overloaded. Less is more. Something made by the children, something inherited from my parents and perhaps an especially beautiful lights. Which may then shine the hole day.

+++ What is your favorite memory as a child about Christmas ?

The best memory is waiting in our frosted glass door, until the desired call “children you can come” from my mother came. The candlelight shone through the glass door and the delicious smell made the wait almost unbearable...

 +++ When you place on your Christmas tree and how it is (he) decorated?

Since last year one day before Christmas Eve. Then we can focus all together only on the decoration of the Christmas tree. The whole living room is full of boxes with christmas balls, wooden pendant, red candles and felt pendant, preferably some small fresh red apples hanging from then hopefully stable branches.

+++ What do you do on Christmas Eve.?

Cook, bake, fry… opening presents… relax, enjoy, drink…
